  • do you need it for religious reasons? I think skirts a bit shorter for toddlers would help with ease walking.

  • Target has really nice and cute girl clothes,I shop there for my 4 year old daughter time to time and they just got in some adorable dresses and skirts.I hope this helps some.

  • My SIL always buys dresses a couple sizes large for her daughters to go to church and school in. They'll wear a tshirt or turtleneck underneath if the dress is too wide.

    Not the best solution, but it's practical.

  • My girl went through a long skirt phase and I only found them used, no brand tag. They were all 2-3 sizes big and made to be short but fell just below the knee cap on her. I would suggest finding them up to a size 6 or so and taking in thw waist. I think I saw some a few months bag in Gymbaree (spelling off), a kid's clothing store. Also check thrift stores and goodwills, they always have good shape, couple year old clothes. Long skirts may not really be in style so it would be hard to find them new. Good luck!

  • I would just find a skirt you like and them re-sew the seams on the sides so it fits right... It's nearly impossible to find skirts like that.

  • Sorry to tell you, but if you think you are having problems NOW, wait till she gets out of size 6X. It is NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE to find modest dresses or skirts for girls sizes 7to 14. We had people looking all over for them. I ended up making or having made most of my daughter's dresses during that size range.

  • plclemo really? it's gotten pretty bad then, i was raised in this church, and never had a problem finding skirts for myself or my sister. it must have been kind of "in" then. i thought of changing pants into skirts, but i don't have the time or the patience to do it.
